I’m halfway through @laracasts’ free @vuejs video tutorials and really enjoying Vue’s lightweight approach:

Favourite bands/music colliding: Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) covers all of Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque.

40p a day for all this! A world without the BBC (and its presenters) would be a worse one. #bbcpay

New @hwclondon (Homebrew Website Club London) site https://hwclondon.co.uk + new venue at WeWork South Bank Central. Join us Wed 12th - 6pm.

I’ve been working on a WebSub hub called Promulgate. It’s fairly basic and although it passes the WebSub.rocks tests it needs a bit more polish. I’ll probably also add background processing via Sidekiq so that publish requests aren’t blocking.

I love Sebastiaan Andeweg‘s new day page with an icon summary of his activity that day. And his Reacji facepiles are also very nice. 😍 Plenty of inspiration for some changes I want to make to Transformative.

I know of a superb graphic designer looking for his next role in the Windsor/Berkshire area. DM me for details if you’re hiring.

A couple of recent site/Transformative changes:

  1. I’m now using Acquiescence, my new IndieAuth server for auth/tokens, on this domain.
  2. You can subscribe to a new JSON feed for homepage content. The RSS feed hasn’t gone away but I thought I’d also support the new JSON Feed format.

Delighted after the first half of the #FACupFinal but nerves are kicking in. Chelsea can’t be that bad in the second half can they?

A little test, posting from Micro.blog for the first time.

Just drank: Tea

(Just testing with Teacup).

Handy pollen/hayfever status web app that I’ll surely be using daily this summer:

I use @culturedcode’s Things to track pretty much everything I do, so I’m looking forward to May’s long-awaited V3:

It’s not often said, but well done @BTCare/@OpenreachGB. First working day after reporting intermittent broadband: engineer visited + fixed.

Previous series of The Walking Dead disappeared from Sky Box Sets today. Found them on Amazon Prime video instead. Bad form, @SkyHelpTeam.

“The 50 Best Britpop Albums”. Not sure all are /Britpop/, but god, I own and still listen to almost all of these.

iOS 10.3 brings wifi and 4G calling for O2 (UK). NB: you need to disable their TU Go service (my request is pending) http://www.o2.co.uk/help/network-coverage-and-international/wifi-and-4g-calling

Very strong morning at #WXGFIVE . Highlight was relearning everything about social media from @TheSocialChain’s omnipotent @SteveBartlettSC.
